A wet winter prepared the vines for a healthy start to the season. The spring was drier than average and the vines responded quickly as they grew and flowered well and quickly. Summer saw warm and dry days with cool nights during which the grapes ripened while retaining their freshness and natural acidity. The grapes for this wine come from six vineyards in the Barossa. Across the road is Shiraz's oldest plot, here they hand pick from Eden Valley vines planted in 1854. The vines have an average age of 110 years. 69% of this comes from Eden Valley and 31% comes from the Barossa Valley. Eden Valley Shiraz offers the exotic aromas and flavor structure while Barossa Valley Shiraz offers rich flavors along with complexity and concentration. After harvest, the wine is aged for 21 months in 25% new French oak barrels and hogsheads.

The wine is deep red in color with purple hues. It gives aromas of dark red cherries, licorice and red raspberries. Aromatically, this is a wine that is full of different types of fruit. Everything combines in the mouth with rich and complex flavors. The freshness of Eden Valley is combined with the depth of Barossa Valley. Perfectly balanced, elegant and simply a beautiful expression of Barossa Shiraz.
